Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Accept Wave for incubation

I agree, there are other wave implementations popping up, some of which include "wave" in the
name and some don't.  "Lightwave" for example is one such project.  I think that Apache Wave
and the Wave in a Box product should be fine.

Also, as Dan points out "Google Wave" product is going to cease to exist in the near future.
 The service / application will be shut down  sometime after the end of the
year.  At this point Google's intent (if I understand it correctly) is that the open source
community take up wave technology where they left off.  This should cut down on any confusion
an complications during the transition.
